If are can be counted among those few who already enjoy the Jelly Bean treatment on your device then you will also know that you are now unable to load Flash videos while browsing the internet. The reason is, as many of us already know, Adobe has decided to completely remove Flash support from Google’s Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system. Google seems to be fine with it and is ready to move on. Not i am sure some users will still miss the Flash player on their Jelly Bean device and thankfully for them, the guys from xda-developers have come to their rescue once again.
Xda-developers Recognized Contributor, Stempox has posted the method to get Flash video running once again on your Jelly Bean device. The method is an extremely simple one and apart from installing the APK of Flash Player, all the users needs is Google’s native browser to watch the Flash video on. That’s right, the Flash Player will only work on Google’s default browser and Google Chrome for Android will not support it. This will not be a problem at all for those with a Samsung Galaxy Nexus or Nexus S device as they come with native Android browser.
In case your device does not have the native browser, as is the case with Nexus 7 users, worry not as this can be downloaded and installed easily. All you have to do is follow xda-developer senior member, Censura_Umbra’s page. The APK for the Android native browser is provided here along with the instructions on how to install it in your device.
Ok, now that you have installed the native browser on your Jelly Bean device, you are ready to move on to the next step, that is, installing the Flash Player apk. The apk is provided and a set of 6 simple steps are explained in Stempox’s page.
Follow these steps and you should be able to watch Flash videos on your Android 4.1 Jelly Bean device without any glitches.
